Eric Hoffer National Book Award Finalist - Honorable Mention for Poetry
What the Hoffer Award judges had to say to the US Review of Books:Invoking Anne Sexton's brand of highly personal, confessional verse, Vitoria's tragically intimate collection fearlessly attempts to reconcile ideas such as fear, suicide, family, commitment, pornography, memory, and experience through the binary elements of sight and touch. Vitoria shows a clear understanding of the safety existing in the eyes, in the act of seeing and observing, and in its inherent physical distance that the hands cannot and do not carry. Not until there exists a trust able to reconcile that physical distance and, as Vitoria explains, "spread the body, [using] thumb and palm and say: here, be happy."
